EERI’s professional development webinars covers a broad range of topics for the community of earthquake risk reduction professionals. You will hear about the latest impacts and lessons from recent earthquakes, learn about emerging research from Earthquake Spectra, and hear from leading experts on complex technical topics. Recordings from previous webinars can be found in the Digital Library and on EERI's YouTube Channel.

Webinar: LFE: Preliminary Geological and Structural Reconnaissance Observations from the August 9, 2020 Sparta, North Carolina Earthquake

Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Cost: Free

On August 9, 2020 at 8:07AM, the largest recorded earthquake to strike North Carolina occurred near Sparta. The 5.1 magnitude earthquake (MMI 6) was preceded in the days before by several small foreshocks felt by local residents and followed to date by ~100 aftershocks. In this webinar, a multidisciplinary team from NC State, UNC-Chapel Hill, USGS, and NC Geological Survey discussed their observations including ground shaking characterization, geological features, and structural damage assessment.

Webinar: PDC: Lifeline Infrastructure System Resilience: Exploring what is it and how we can implement

Thursday, 10 September 2020
Cost: Paid

In this webinar, attendees gained an understanding of key concepts needed for lifeline systems to be resilient to earthquakes and other hazards. Functionality and operability are continuous expressions useful for measuring lifeline system resilience. These expressions are explored along with the basic lifeline services and their recoveries needed to ensure communities can achieve their resilience objectives./p>

Webinar: PDC: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Improving Community Resilience to Natural Hazards

Wednesday, 26 August 2020
Cost: Paid

This webinar explored moving from performance-based engineering to multi-disciplinary community resilience, in which engineering merges with social, economic, and information science. The webinar used 15 years of whole building shake table tests of resilient and non-resilient wood-frame apartment buildings to enter this discussion from an earthquake engineering perspective.

Webinar: YMC: Advances in Seismic Risk Assessment using Simulated Earthquake Ground Motions

Monday, 10 August 2020

Presented by the EERI Younger Members Committee, this webinar presented recent studies that utilize physics-based simulations to identify the important characteristics of earthquake ground motions and expected structural response. Physics-based simulations of earthquake ground motions have steadily emerged as an alternative for seismic risk assessment of civil structures, particularly for regions expected to experience large-magnitude and rare earthquakes, for which few observational data is available.

Webinar: LFE: Magna, Utah Earthquake Reconnaissance Briefing Webinar

Thursday, 23 July 2020

This Learning from Earthquakes webinar provided an overview of the impacts from the M5.7 March 18, 2020 Magna, Utah earthquake. In this multidisciplinary webinar, attendees gained insights covering science, engineering, and response aspects of the earthquake. Attendees also learned how the earthquake affected the natural and built environment, as well as about current mitigation efforts in Utah.
